We want ABBYY https://www.abbyy.com/en-eu/ with the QT interface, Tesseract OCR does not properly do the OCR process in documents. They may not have people working because they want money and privatize all.
Really interesting project. I have been playing with tesseract and having pretty good luck with it. I hit a roadblock however when I try and get it to read digital LCD screens. Google leads me to some potential leads but so far nothing workable. I would like to use it to read the digital output on a flow-rate meter. I can see lots of applications for such a tool in science and engineering (reading equipment output) Most modern science/engineering equipment can be coupled with a computer these days but not all. For less than $100 this could allow us to digitize even older equipment. Going to keep chasing.
So I scanned some text (see below) from a magazine that was printed in columns but how do I get it to stop appearing bunched up like this? Surely there must be a way to stop it pasting exactly the way it was copied? I tried using notepad without word wrap but it makes no difference. Can anyone think of a way to remedy this so it runs horizontally from left to right instead of a long vertical column? Rearranging this manually line by line is brain numbing. There must be a hack to sort this one out or is this really an impossible task. I believe there must be a way but I can't fathom how to do it.

The Velvet Underground article? Well maybe next year. 4 PAGES OF REVIEWS AFTER HOURS
That's the reverse search you get in terminals. You can get to it by typing Ctrl+r, and start typing the command you want to search for. It will constantly update the screen with the last command issued that matches what you've typed so far.
At about 10m23s you're doing some kind of command history search. Can you point me towards the command or some reference material that I can learn more about this? It looked especially handy! Cool video — very informative!
This will not work on a good captcha. That's why captchas are so hard to read, so you can't do this. If a SPAM bot is getting past a captcha, it's more likely that there is another security hole on the site and teh bot is by passing the captcha altogether.
the thing with OCR, is that (in my experience) even the comercial OCR programs work porly if the font isn't set properly. If the font is set as the same as the ones on the image than the resaults are almost perfect (font needs to be installed). That said I have tried a couple of opensource ones and didn't have good resaults, but I didn't know about this neet trick with the resolution :). If there is an opensource one that has the font settings I think the resaults should be better. Great vid btw
